This coming Saturday, 28th January, it's the first Short-ARS walk of 2012.
The walk is a route heading from Audlem car park northwards passing near Moss Hall, Hankelow Mill, Coole Lane (for a few steps) and returning via the canal to Audlem.
It's 9.30am from Audlem car park.
A provisional programme for the year has now been pulled together but any suggestions for alternatives will be considered.
Short-ARS walks are normally of 5 — 7 miles in length with only easy climbs. They are from Audlem itself or within a 30-minute or so drive, and are on the fourth (and occasionally fifth) Saturday of the month.
Start times will normally be 9.30am from the main Car Park in Audlem. Walkers need to wear good stout shoes or walking boots and carry wet weather gear. The walks will usually include a stop for a refreshment break but many will be back in Audlem for a lunch-time pint and/or in time for lunch.
Short-ARS walkers are expected to become members of ARS, although do come along for a “trial” walk to see if joining is likely to appeal. The annual membership is £5.
